I had radiation therapy and chemotherapy for stage 4b2 cervical cancer, Is it possible my ovaries weren’t completely fried and I’m ovulating again?
I’m 34 years old and was treated with radiation and chemo 2 years ago for stage 4b2 cervical and haven’t had a menstrual cycle since as expected. Went through all the changes my gyn/onc explained. Then a week ago I began bleeding again. I just last month a a clean exam and pet scan. Is it possible my ovaries weren’t completely fried and I’m ovulating again?
Hi and welcome to questiondoctors .com
It is possible to get ovulation after treatment of cervical cancer…but you need to check with your doctor for the cause if it is period blood or other source bleeding..
Does it look like normal period blood and flow?
yes,its possible that your ovaries may be partially active and may be functioning. get your hormonal levels checked.
Any dose higher than 24gy will completely destroy your ovaries however many women have surived this
U should consult your gynaecologist as u may be still ovulating
Goodluck i suppose 🙂
